I have tried both the Zip Line course and the Via Ferrata. Both courses were very enjoyable and unlike anything I had experienced before. I had no previous experience with climbing or ziplines and found both courses were easily within my abilities, although the Via does require a slightly higher level of fitness and tolerance for heights. My first visit... More

My daughter and I scheduled a climb in early December 2015 as it was warm enough to do something and not cold enough to ski. I called and they were able to schedule us for the Via Ferrata climb the next day. We had no prior real climbing experience though strenuous hiking/backpacking etc. adventures we were experienced in.

Had a blast with my boyfriend and 2 others!!! The Via Ferrata was really fun and our weekend stay couldn't have been any better! We rented a room with a double bed and a set of twin bunk beds. The room was super basic; clean, beds, bathroom and lights. The first floor has a large area that is open all... More

Can I give it an rating higher than 5? They deserve it! There is so much to say about Nrocks, the views are breathtaking. I really don't think anyone would have any reason to complain about this. The staff was amazing and answered any and all questions. I climbed the Via and felt 100% safe at all times. My guide,... More

In regards to the night Via Ferrata trip, that trip is a totally different experience from a daytime climb. Climbing when the leaves are changing is also very unique so you've got plenty of... More

My first time zip lining however the boys have been several times. Needless to say I don't like heights either but felt very safe with the employees of Nrock. They suited us up, double checking...

We climbed the Via Ferrata with 4 adults and 7 teenagers on a lovely fall day (Oct 2015) and it was truly one of the best things I have done in a couple of years. I am not too thrilled with heights - but I felt safe the entire time (my heart was pounding on the bridge & at a... More

We went on the Via Ferrata which was an incredible experience. This is defiantly a must do bucket list adventure. A whole new world unfolds around every rock and your eyes can't open wide enough to take it all in. This trip will reveal the beauty behind the name, Almost Heaven West Virginia.

What an adrenaline pumping adventure the Via Ferrata is for someone who has never rock climbed before. Putting safety first, NROCKS has put together an awesome tour for the adventure junkie. My husband and I were two in a group of ten, with Nick and Tom as our guides (these guys are top-notch). The Via Ferrata is challenging physically but... More
